It seems you assume that it is not an overheating problem.
The problem is, the bulb gets really, really hot when using the projector. It doesn't matter whether it has been there without any usage. As you switch it on, it will start to get hot.
But the lamp or other parts of the projector should not get too hot. To control the temperature, air is moved through the projector with the help of fans. Air enters through air filters and move through the projector absorbing heat from hot parts. This prevents these parts from getting overheated.
But what if air doesn't flow freely? Then the parts CAN get overheated.
First, switch on the projector and check whether you can hear the fans working.
Next, switch off the projector and remove power cable.
After about 30 minutes, remove the cover and check whether the air filters are blocked. If they are, clean them with a small brush.
This would probably solve your problem.
Ordinarily my first thought would be that the lamp is needing replacement. But if it's brand new, the lamp should be OK. Can you open the lamp compartment to see if it was broken during transit, or perhaps it's not fully seated properly. If it's a broken lamp, then I would contact the dealer you purchased it from, or contact the manufacturer directly to have it replaced. Also, is the noise loud and unusual, or just the normal sound of a projector coming on? If it's very loud, it could be the fan motor. Check that the fan is blowing. If the fan is the problem, the projector will shut down to protect itself from overheating. That, too, should be covered under the waranty.
